34. Rejoice, Ye Pure in Heart

1 Rejoice ye pure in heart,
rejoice, give thanks, and sing;
your festal banner wave on high,
the cross of Christ your King.

[Refrain:]
Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice,
give thanks and sing.

2 With all the angel choirs,
with all the saints of earth,
pour out the strains of joy and bliss,
true rapture, noblest mirth! (Refrain)

3 Yes, on through life’s long path,
still chanting as ye go;
from youth to age, by night and day,
in gladness and in woe. (Refrain)

4 Still lift your standard high,
still march in firm array,
as warriors through the darkness toil
till dawns the golden day. (Refrain)
